The 11th Annual Louie Bluie Music & Arts Festival celebrates the rich history of Campbell County and our festival namesake, Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong (1909-2003), who spent most of his childhood in LaFollette. Though he grew up poor in rural, segregated East Tennessee, Howard's artistic spirit thrived. He was an award-winning musician, painter, jewelry maker, master of languages, and the subject of two documentary films.
Louie Bluie takes place on the grounds of Cove Lake State Park, just off I-75 in Caryville, Tenn. Four stages of live music and performance, craft village, Kids' Zone, food court, and an art & quilt show.
Check our website - LouieBluie.org - for details on performers and schedule as they become available.
Admission is FREE, though donations of $5/person $10/family are appreciated. Accessible parking and ground transportation is available. Leashed dogs allowed.
